Oleg on why he shoots film:

My journey began in Lviv, Ukraine when I was 16 and just started working at a photo lab, where met the film. Like plastic, color and depth, which creates only the film. This is very special choice for me. I see film photography as a game in a casino. You can win big or lose it all. I press the shutter release button and then I have to wait to find out the results when the film is processed. The game doesn’t end there. I spend a really long time waiting. Only after scanning and post processing I can see the end result. It’s a very cool feeling, addictive like a drug.”

I decided to try pushing some Kodak Portra 160 to 3200 and intentionally creating light leaks on my Kiev 88 during my last fashion test. Although I am pleased with the results, I do not recommend trying this for something important. I was also shooting digital for the sake of the modeling agent, which means if this didn’t work it wasn’t the end of the world.
